Monday, 27 May 2024, 17:27 Last update: about 26 days ago

In the coming days, Enemalta will carry out works in Marsalforn to strengthen electricity distribution in the area and to also prepare for the continuation of these works in the months that follow.

During a visit on site, Minister Clint Camilleri said that this extensive project to reinforce Enemalta's network in Marsalforn, which will later extend to other localities in the vicinity, is part of a wider project that Enemalta is working on in Gozo.

The minister said that because this is a big project, it will be divided into four phases to minimise inconvenience for residents, businesses, and visitors to this tourist village.

Camilleri continued that the first phase, which will be completed before the summer begins, will see the installation of a new electricity cable in part of Triq il-Qbajjar, spanning over 340 metres. After the season ends, the project will continue along the road as well as in other streets that Enemalta has already identified, planned, and awarded the necessary tenders for.

The Executive Chairman of Enemalta, Ryan Fava, stated that the work to be carried out in Marsalforn is part of the strengthening of the electricity distribution in the island of Gozo. In recent months, Enemalta, together with the Ministry for Gozo, has laid new 11-kilovolt cables in Nadur and Xlendi (Munxar), providing Enemalta with more alternative connections that facilitate the restoration of supply in less time in case of faults.

The Mayor of Żebbuġ, of which Marsalforn is a part of, Marlene Cini, welcomed the news that apart from the replacement of electricity cables by Enemalta, this road will be resurfaced. She expressed her hopes that with the continuation of this extensive project after the summer, the main road in Marsalforn will have been resurfaced, complementing a much larger project: the rebuilding of the road that leads from Rabat to Marsalforn, done with full respect for the area's environment following discussions with various organisations.
